We stayed 5 nights in this lovely small B and B, in the 2 double rooms on the first floor. The rooms were big and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. We were given a very friendly welcome and the breakfast was great. We felt we could have asked for anything! There were no problems parking outside or just up the road.... More

Brilliant value, breakfast was lovely and the owner couldnt have been... More

Excellent breakfast and owner couldn't do enough to help us. He even offered us the use of his washing machine and dryer to wash clothes as we we were on a long distant walk. Position of B&B is very good.

Found ourselves in Bamburgh and got the very last room in town. A gem of a find - lovely big double room with en suite. Such a comfy bed - oodles of hot water for showers. Best was the very friendly owner who made us feel so at home and relaxed. Sadly the restaurant was fully booked so something else... More

We had another wonderful stay at Hillcrest this year. It was very clean and comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome. Great breakfast every morning to put us on for the day ahead! We look forward to our stay next year.

This B and B suited our purposes of staying just one night but it is very bare bones. The room is clean and the bathroom is large and spotless but no extras are thrown in to make it stand out. Breakfast was fine but porridge is out of a store bought cup and again just the basics. Full breakfast was... More

This two night stay was booked solely on the reviews read on this site and we were expecting a really comfortable experience for the price. For a couple staying, this guest house would be ideal, but it isn't, and shouldn't be promoted as family accommodation. The top floor of the house is sold as family accommodation having one large room... More

This is a truly lovely B&B. It is absolutely spotless with possibly the most comfy bed ever. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and delicious. Our host was thoughtful and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

A perfect place to stay for our visit to Bamburgh. We stayed 1 night in the beautiful room on the top floor. A very spacious and comfortable room for us with lovely views. Malcolm and his family are wonderful hosts and although we arrived on spec and without a booking they made us so welcome. Breakfast was delicious with lots... More
